Hi I'm Cheryl

I grew up in New York State. I joined the church when I was 19. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a single mom, recently graduated from College with my Bachelors degree. I love to read, walk, listen to 50s music and travel. I help others with their family history.

Why I am a Mormon

I feel privileged to have a testimony of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. The knowledge I have of a loving Heavenly Father and of the plan of salvation brings me great joy. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and know that not only does He live, but that He atoned for my sins. Because of His selfless act not only will all be resurrected, all will have the opportunity to live AGAIN with our Father in Heaven. I love the Book of Mormon. I know it is true. Having this knowledge makes me accountable to act upon what I know. Involvement is the responsible action. The knowledge of an ancient civilization upon the American continent is very rewarding for me. One ancient pattern of the Gospel of Jesus Christ which has been restored today is that of a Prophet leading and directing His people upon the earth. I for one have chosen to follow and obey the living Prophet. This knowledge brings me great personal peace; especially during these most tumultuous times.

How I live my faith

I read daily from the Book of Mormon. I know it is the word of God. I know Lehi and his family came from Jerusalem. Nephi and his brothers carried the words of the Torah and other prophets such as Isaiah. The Bible is very important to me. Knowing the Book of Mormon and the Bible are compatible is very heartwarming for me. I am privileged to live near Palmyra, New York. I visit the Sacred Grove and the Palmyra Temple on a regular basis. These acts enable me to strengthen my testimony. I am a support to my children and extended family. I also volunteer at church. I participate in community projects, and help others research their family history.
